Iris Apfel

Author: Maria Isabel Sánchez Vegara

Illustrated by: Kristen Barnhart

Meet Iris Apfel, the vivacious (and accidental) fashion icon.

Growing up in Queens, New York, little Iris was the only child at family events. Her grandmother would open a giant bag of fabric, filled with every color and pattern, and let her play with fabric scraps. This inspired a lifelong love of fashion. Famous for her eclectic style, built around oversized glasses, bright colors, and bold jewelry, Iris was the subject of an exhibit at the Metropolitan Museum of Art when she was just 84 years young. This inspiring book features stylish and quirky illustrations and extra facts at the back, including a biographical timeline with historical photos and a detailed profile of the “geriatric starlet’s” life.
